To increase their Level I trauma center and expand inpatient care, the University of Virginia Health System needed a multi-phased expansion and renovation on their urban campus. With a project of this size, clear communication and collaboration was critical. The University Hospital expansion team sought the latest technology to provide solutions and allow the end users to play a role in the design process. Presenters will examine the collaborative approach through technology, focusing on construction and related design processes.
1.) Discover the benefits of each tool and how it can affect a project’s budget and schedule.
2.) Encounter solutions to help minimize disruptions to hospital operations during construction.
3.) Identify which factors to consider when making the decision to use technology.
4.) Identify best practices when using each technology and apply lessons learned.
